Business / Residential Inspection Fee
Dear Business Owner: The Redondo Beach Fire Department began mailing the postcard above at the beginning of January 2018 to all business owners in the city informing them of the fire department’s new business inspection program effective February 1, 2018. For additional information regarding the program, please see below.
The City of Redondo Beach Fire Department conducts annual fire and life safety inspections at all commercial and residential (3+ units) occupancies within the city limits of Redondo Beach. These inspections are required under the tenets of the California Fire Code and the adopted Redondo Beach Fire Code. These mandatory inspections lessen the threat of hostile fires to the business and residential community, and help ensure the protection of our residents, visitors and business owners. Redondo Beach Fire Department inspectors perform all inspections.
In order to continue to provide this essential service to our community, City Council has approved the institution of inspection fees*. The fees’ purpose is to recover the costs of providing these services and will be effective February 1, 2018.
The fee for the initial inspection is $113.50. If the time needed to complete the inspection exceeds one hour, $95.00 will be charged for every hour of inspection time thereafter. Violations found during the initial inspection will require correction and will be subject to re-inspection. There is no additional charge for the first re-inspection, providing that the violations have been corrected. Re-inspections for second and subsequent visits will be charged $123.00.
The Redondo Beach Fire Department would like to thank all business owners and property managers for their assistance with this very important public safety program.
*(Pursuant to Resolution No. CC-1706-155)
